You see, the genius behind this long-standing, strong position, it is that if the DNC chairman Tom Perez doesn’t want to enact Keith Ellison’s agenda that swarms every Democrat’s senses with fear and disgust – a $15 wage and universal health coverage, for example – then he doesn’t have to because clearly, he was chosen by the people who fund the political association.
The DNC has always been friendly to ideas outside the mainstream as a minority political party; it’s been three months since Trump has been office, right? Take the example of Representative Tusi Gabbard and how the DNC reconciled progressive ideals and Democrat ideals (and in a friendly way, too):
“Representative Gabbard, We were very disappointed to hear that you would resign your position with the DNC so you could endorse Bernie Sanders, a man who has never been a Democrat before. When we met over dinner a couple of years ago I was so impressed by your intellect, your passion, and commitment to getting things done on behalf of the American people. For you to endorse a man who has spent almost 40 years in public office with very few accomplishments, doesn’t fall in line with what we previously thought of you. Hillary Clinton will be our party’s nominee and you standing on ceremony to support the sinking Bernie Sanders ship is disrespectful to Hillary Clinton. A woman who has spent the vast majority of her life in public service and working on behalf of women, families, and the underserved.
You have called both myself and Michael Kives before about helping your campaign raise money, we no longer trust your judgement so will not be raising money for your campaign.”

If that doesn’t scream “unity” behind Democrat ideals, I don’t know what does. But I know what screams “hope” in light of a federal government flooded by the Republican Party in every level from the local to the White House: Keith Ellison’s emails. Substance and reflection. Perhaps.
I trust the DNC, without the guidance of those dime-a-dozen progressives, to weave Democrat legislation that will benefit the working class in the United States who complain of “representation”, or the humiliating submission to transnational powers who bleed American citizens in a race to the bottom with impoverished nations or the immense impact of lobbyists who act as brokers between special interests and the Congress. Especially refuse to yield to conflicts of interest that they keep parading in their site.
Update, 1:15 PM: I have learned that Washington Post released headlines, “DNC rolls back Obama ban on contributions from federal lobbyists.” Alternative news? Russian invasion? Third parties? Sexism?
This is a satirical piece; I am shit at satire, okay?
Democrat Platform: No Democratic President, a net gain of two seats with no Senate majority in 2016, and a net gain of six seats with no House of Representatives majority.
DNC Chair Candidate and Idaho Democratic Party Executive Director: “My job is to listen and be a voice and shut other white people down when they want to interrupt…”, shutting down roughly three-fourths of the United States with little mandate.
Cleary, this is the ace in the hole for the DNC; watch out, Republican President Donald J. Trump. Truly, the DNC is a political rival to be feared.
For a better, progressive nation, we must step away from both identity politics and post-truth politics, and push our progressive agenda. For more information, read my post on the Justice Democrats.
I have received news that the California DNC delegation is holding an important DNC Chair conference call on Sunday, January 29 to discuss the latest developments in the race and hear your thoughts.
For those with a progressive alignment, look to the Justice Democrat’s platform and the criticism that Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton received:
- Passing a constitutional amendment and/or legislation in opposition to Washington corruption and in support of election reform. Look to the now endangered South Dakota Measure 22 that (a) required additional disclosures and increased reporting, (b) limited contributions and gifts to and from political action committees; political parties; and candidates for statewide, legislative, or county office, (c) prohibits certain State officials and high-level employees from lobbying until two years after leaving State government.
- Re-regulating Wall Street and holding white-collar criminals accountable. One common solution often proposed by progressives is re-instating a 21st century Glass-Steagall legislation. Eskow of Friends of Bernie Sanders argues that the repeal of the four provisions took a role in the 2008 financial crisis and has created risky, less transparent banks that are “too big to fail”.
- End corporate tax dodging; people must pay their fair share, and it is more than civil disobedience for corporations to rely on offshore tax havens. We, as a country, lose out of billions in revenue that could be used to supplement our schools, infrastructure, government, etc.
- Defend free speech and expression and must not shut down ideas based on talking points, but oppose bigotry. Clinton staff often would cite sexism in the Sanders camp, and to this day, news outlets continue to demonize Trump voters rather than communicate. Make no mistake; President Donald Trump has used outrageous, disgusting rhetoric, but this “No such thing as a Trump voter” mentality is ridiculous. For more information, read near the end of my critique of Jamelle Bouie’s article There’s No Such Thing as a Good Trump Voter.
- Ensure universal health care as a right, or at the very least amend the Affordable Care Act in a balanced manner. A recipient of popular public support within the country, England’s National Health Service provides healthcare to all permanent residents of the United Kingdom that is free at the point of use and paid for from general taxation, but allows for a private option for those willing to pay.
- End unnecessary spending in war, nation building, and the Pentagon. Craig Whitlock and Bob Woodward of the Washington Post report that the Pentagon buried evidence of $125 billion in “administrative waste in its business operations”, undermining the myth that our defense is starving. This is beyond a partisan position; this is a matter of cost-effectiveness.
